What you need to do is disconnect the compressor at the electrical access on the side of the unit. Check each wire to the grounding screw using ohm meter if you get continuity your compressor is shorted do the same thing for you condenser fan. I bet your compressor is shorted. Make sure power is off and remember where the wires go. Trace the wires that go to compressor back to the contactor and capacitor and disconnect them there. If this help please rate me and do a testimonial.

Any ideas as to why the panel breaker for my Goodman CPE24-1AB heat pump would immediately trip when the air conditioner is turned on?


Without looking up the specifications for this heat pump, I cannot be certain, but I expect the operation to provide cooling may require more power than when heating. You probably can find the specifications online for this unit. As you probably know, power is measured in watts and is calculated by voltage times current. This also is likely to be 240 volts operation. If you take the specified power on cooling and divide by voltage (240), that will indicate the current in amperage that will be required to start it. Your circuit breaker is set for current and needs to be a higher current than is required. If that is the problem, you can buy circuit breakers at Home Depot or Lowes. You have to remove the front panel of your breaker box and snap out the circuit breaker. To be safe it would be good to turn off the main breaker switch before you open the front panel and remove the circuit breaker for the heat pump. Should your calculation of current required be less than the rating of the circuit breaker, that implies a malfunction of the heat pump in the cooling mode and would require a service call to the local representative of the heat pump manufacturer.

WHERE IS THE Goodman GSZ130301 RESET BUTTON ON CONDENSOR


No reset button. As for low/high pressure switches they reset on their own when the problem is corrected. Usually low refrigerant.

Where is fuse for 5 ton goodman package unit heat pump


Im assuming you mean the low voltage fuse? In that case its located on the circuit board inside the electrical panel on the unit. If looking for the high voltage fuse (breaker) you should have a disconnect outside protected by a breaker inside at the electric service panel (breaker box).

I HAVE A 2 1/2 TON PACKAGE HEAT PUMP . THE60 AMP BREAKER AT THE DISCONNECT BOX KEPT TRIPPING . I DISCONNECTED THE HEAT STRIPS AND NOW THE 60 AMP BREAKER ISNT TRIPPING . WHAT IS CAUSING MY BREAKER TO T


You need to check the current rating of your heat strips. If it is more than 60 amps then you need a bigger breaker. If 60 amps or less then your heat strips are going bad. Also make sure your fan turns smoothly without any wobble.

My 5 ton Goodman Heat Pump won't go into heat or ac mode. Fan won't turn on. No noise from compressor. System is 1 1/2 yeras old.


Easy: Turn the "fan" switch to on at the thermostat and see if the blower starts. If no start, check breaker at breaker box. Check service disconnect at or near the air handler. With the breaker and/or service disconnect OFF check the 3 or 5 amp fuse inside the top cover in the air handler.
Not so easy: (You must know what you are doing for this part or let an HVAC Tech do it for you) Open thermostat and firmly jump the Y and R terminals to see if you get the compressor to start for no more than 30 seconds. (don't do it more than once.) Jump the G and R terminals to see if you get the blower to start. If so, u have a bad thermostat. If not, check the transformer inside the same cover in air handler for proper voltage. (24V. Make sure you also get 220 on the opposite side of the transformer)
If the blower comes on, but the heat pump doesnt start, open the side cover of the heat pump, with the thermostat on cool, and the temp. setting as low as possible for at least 10 minutes see if the contactor is pulled in. If so, check the capacitor and see if it's blown out. Be super careful these systems operate with 220v and the amperes are enough to kill you if you make a simple mistake.

Tripping breaker


There is a short circuit in the fan motor or compressor most likely. Disconnect the common wire to the compressor and try again. If the fan comes on and the breaker does not trip you have a bad compressor or a bad wire touching somewhere. Also,check the capacitor. Is it bulgded out or a burned wire? Could be a bad capacitor.

Goodman heat pump 5 ton power problem


Sound like the outside unit is going to ground or the unit is over amping. Take and shut off the power to the unit and check all of the electrical connection for tightness. Don't forget to check the disconnect wires too since you shut it off at the breaker box. If you have a meter check to see if it''s live before you work on it. If it's all tight then call back the person that did the previous repair and tell them that he obviously missed something and the you feel that it should be a warranty call.

Heat Pump/Furnace Trip Circuit Breaker


My system will run for a short period and then suddenly trips the circuit breaker in the main panel for the heat pump.

I have a Goodman - 3 ton system about 8 - 9 yrs old. I'm being told that I need to replace the heat pump/air conditioner compressor?

What do you think?
